A movie Review: Mr. Nobody

“What was there before the big bang? Well, you see, there was no before because before the big bang, time did not exist. Time is a result of the expansion of the universe itself. But what will happen when the universe has finished expanding?”- Adult Nemo

Have you ever tried questioning your existence? How sure are you that you really exist? We describe reality as what we perceived by our senses. Other than that, we regarded them as imagination or just mere ideas. But, how sure are we that there is only one reality? What if the reality that we were living is just a dream or an imagination? What if there was another dimension of the world other than the world that is known to us? What could have happened? What could have happened if you chose to be early for school or if you chose to be late? What could have happened if you did that instead of this? Life is full of choices and not making a choice is our choice.

Mr. Nobody will make you ask yourself this kind of questions. This movie is very inspirational that could make your mind wander in the depths of your imaginations. In this movie, Nemo tries to remember his past, his memories when he was still a little boy. As he goes through the remembering process, his listeners become confused of what really had happened. He begins to tell his story that when his parents separated, he chose his mother and then the story of his life continuous. On the other hand, he also tells a story of what happened to his life when he chose his father. It is like he lived in these different worlds and each world is different from one another. He lived in the two sides of the stories and that makes the movie very interesting! 

Here are some inspirational quotes from this movie:
Nemo age 9: You have to make the right choice. As long as you don't choose, everything remains possible.
Nemo Nobody aged 118: Every path is the right path. Everything could've been anything else. And it would have just as much meaning.
The child could not make a choice because he did not know what would happen, but now that he knows what will happen, he can not make a choice.
Young journalist: Everything you say is contradictory. You can't have been in one place and another at the same time. Of all those lives, which one is the right one? Nemo Nobody aged 118: Each of these lives is the right one! Every path is the right path. Everything could have been anything else and it would have just as much meaning.
At my age the candles cost more than the cake. I'm not afraid of dying. I'm afraid I haven't been alive enough. It should be written on every school room blackboard: Life is a playground - or nothing.

I love their playlist, especially the songs entitled "Mr. Sandman by The Chordettes" and "Buddy Holly - Everyday". I definitely recommend this movie to anyone who is interested with philosophical questions and to those who wants to make their mind wander! Definitely another movie to include in my favorite list. Now readers, give me your comment/feedback :)
